It’s Just A Clock

crayola clockI have an old Crayola brand clock. An old style one with a minute hand and an hour hand. The hands are shaped like crayons. Uses an AA battery.

Why do I have it, and not one of the kids? They got too old for it! I know, I am a grandpa and grandpas are old. But it reminds me of simpler days, with young children running around the house.

AND, I have no plans on giving it to a grandchild!!! At least not until I am either dead or too senile to notice!

It was just leaning on a bookcase and I finally decided to hang it on the wall, just above my computer desk. If I am quiet and listen carefully, I can hear the little clicking noises that its mechanism makes.

The simple life.

    P.S. I certainly hope that is not the only thing hanging on your walls but knowing you it probably is…….one of these days I will come there and sort out your little world!

    [gr replies – Exactly. I lost track of it and was like a little lost dog. I have one photo on the livingroom wall – that famous one of Jasmine cuddling the light brown cat]
